LED Phototherapy: Healthy skin cells are compromised and unable to renew themselves normally as a result of natural aging, skin disorders or trauma. Skin has the ability to absorb certain wavelengths (colours) of light; it can use them as a source of energy to initiate specific cellular functions for therapeutic effect. LED’s can artificially emit these specific light wavelengths to recharge the cells, energising them to heal quicker and rejuvenate faster. It is a natural biochemical process – similar to that of plant photosynthesis – known as photobiomodulation.
LED Phototherapy delivers clinically researched wavelengths of light that initiate specific cellular reactions. These wavelengths delivered at a controlled energy level by Dermalux™ systems; the selected intensity and dose triggers for optimal photobiomodulation of target skin cells and tissue.
Red light at 633nm (nanometres, the measure of wavelength) will benefit all skin types and has a unique anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating effect on the skin. Near infrared light, still on the visible spectrum at 830nm, is the wavelength absorbed deepest by skin tissue. It works together with red light to synthesising collagen, elastin and growth precursors: counteracting and reversing skin damage and aging. The anti-bacterial action of blue light (at 415nm) is proven to be extremely
effective in the treatment of acne and working to prevent future breakouts.
A unique feature of Dermalux™ is that all three wavelengths can be delivered either as individual treatments or concurrently in any selected combination, providing stimulation at a intercellular, cellular and tissue basis. Multiple skin concerns can be targeted in one clinic session for
the best response.
LED Phototherapy does not use heat, trauma or chemicals to promote change in the skin and is therefore less invasive, providing one of the safest methods to treat all skin types (I to VI) without resulting downtime or long term thermal incidence. LED Phototherapy can also be undertaken alongside most medication and enables the effective treatment of reactive, compromised and sensitive skin ailments.
LED Phototherapy is also a procedure that works brilliantly when used adjacent to any existing skin treatments and products to enhance clinical outcomes. LED light can be applied post-treatment to reduce inflammation and redness, reduce healing time and reduce the risk of infection. It is also effective when used to prepare and strengthen the skin in as a prelude to invasive treatments that can result in skin inflammation or trauma.
Treatment times are short and the visible results are, in most cases, immediate; Dermalux™ instantly revives and improves dull, tired complexion. After just one session, skin is hydrated, smooth and radiant, with irritation and redness significantly reduced. A course of treatment sessions at our Westhoughton clinic offers corrective and lasting improvement in the appearance and overall health of the skin.
Beautiful skin is achievable for everybody with Dermalux®. One treatment instantly energises skin cells to revitalise a dull and tired complexion. A course of treatment offers long lasting visible results, stimulating the skin’s natural rejuvenation and repair processes to speed up cell renewal, resolve
problem skin conditions and promote vibrant healthy-looking skin.
We are all influenced by the Power of Light
Light has many positive effects on our bodies; it helps us to produce essential vitamin D, triggers growth, promotes wellbeing and makes our skin glow!
Phototherapy occurs naturally all around us and is based on the principle that our cells absorb light and use it fuel natural rejuvenation and repair processes. Different wavelengths stimulate different effects in the skin. We know that on-going exposure to UV light is very damaging but controlled levels of Red, Blue and Near Infrared light are clinically proven to be beneficial.
A celebrity skin care favourite, LED Phototherapy is the application of these beneficial wavelengths into the skin’s deepest layers to energise our cells with proven rejuvenating results. It is a natural response similar to that of plant photo-synthesis through a process known as photobiomodulation.
Skin cells that are energised function better and can regenerate up to 200% faster which in turn leads to a more youthful, healthy and radiant complexion.
